Cadillac claims new seven-camera setup is “an industry-first surround-vision video recording system”.
Cadillac has installed the most elaborate camera system on a car to date in its new CT6 model. The Surround Vision camera system can use four of the vehicle’s seven external cameras to record video of the CT6’s surroundings. The four recording cameras are mounted on each side mirror, the front grille and on the rear trunk lid. The other three cameras are used for the Rear Camera Mirror, the Lane Keep Assist system and the Night Vision system.
When activated, the system captures video using all four cameras in a ’round-robin’ way, though, only when the CT6 has been disturbed in some way. It can also be used at all other times to provide a 360-degree display to help with maneuvering. The system has a second mode too, which uses only the front and rear mounted cameras to record video while driving.

The surround-vision system is meant to be used for recording memorable drives while also being employed as a security system or to record video after an accident. The system comes standard in the CT6 Luxury, CT6 Premium Luxury and the CT6 Platinum variants.
